"Certainly" Shara smiles. "It smells delicious. So, you were a pig-wrestler you say? Must have a lot of good stories."

Shara digs into the salmon with pleasure, the food here is very good. She is a little confused, she has no idea how to go about this adventuring business, and is not even sure that she even wants to. She finds a somewhat quiet corner of the market square and enjoys the autumn sun.

Shara:
Ameiko laughs. "Only part-time," she says. "I used to take part in the contest every year. Won my fair share of coins. Old Goliath and I are pals. What about you? Are you enjoying the festival so far?"

"You know Mark.."
"My name is Gressel." the poor food-stand man says.
"You know Mark... Where I come from people pay their taxes, they behave in front of their betters and they're miserable just like everyone else. God damn peasants.. *hic*" Jack slurs on, noticeably drunk. "More ale, Mark!"
"I told you, my name is.. Oh nevermind."

"I am, I am. And the food is so good! What other activities goes on during this?" Shara says, while still munching on the salmon. So good.

Shara:
"Not much, honestly. Not until Father Zantus has completed the consecration of the new cathedral, at least. But when he's done with that, there'll be bonfires! Bonfires and fireworks and all sorts of entertainment. Some sort of famous big-city diva will be performing at the theater, and people will be getting really drunk. It's gonna be great."

"Well. If people are getting drunk, i might as well join in on the fun. I heard something about your ale, how about one of those".

Soon Shara feels the spirit of the Swallowtail festival as well, although she keeps her blood alcohol level fairly controlled for the evening. One never knows what might happen.

Shathys finds his way to the food tables with a great pitcher of ale in hand and already well off and tipsy. 

"By my mothers bosom! Look at all this food!" 

Walking around and sampling the foods if various stalls, Shathys sits with a full belly and a happy outlook on life at a stall. 

"I heard the man next to me call you Mark, so Mark it is.

Now, Mark, I'm Shathys and this is my mug. I'll be here for awhile so as long as I sit here and you keep this mug full, were gonna be a-okay."

Shathys smiles as he slips the man called Mark a gold coin.

After a few hours of eating, drinking and generally enjoying yourselves immensely, the time for the consecration has finally arrived. The sky has grown darker, a thousand hues of orange and blue stretching across the horizon, as the sun has begun its descent.

People gather around the main stage and their excited whispers slowly die down when Father Zantus motions for silence. He raises his hand, and in it is a small, glowing stone. "A thunderstone," you hear someone whisper. "To get the gods' attention." He mutters a word, and a sharp retort, like the crack of distant thunder, slices through the excited crowd as the sun’s setting rays paint the western sky. A stray dog that has crawled under a nearby wagon to sleep starts awake, and the buzz of a few conversations quickly hushes as all attention is turned toward the the beaming Father Zantus.

He clears his throat, takes a breath to speak, and suddenly a woman’s scream slices through the air. A few moments later, another scream rises, then another. Beyond them, a sudden surge of strange new voices rises—high-pitched, tittering shrieks that sound not quite human. The crowd parts and something low to the ground races by, giggling with disturbing glee as the stray dog gives a pained yelp and then collapses with a gurgle, its throat cut open from ear to ear. As blood pools around its head, the raucous sound of a strange song begins, chanted from shrill, scratchy voices.

As frantic screams of "Goblins!" cut through the air, panic spreads like wildfire through the crowd, and within moments only three people remain in the square. Three people who are bound together by forces they may not fully understand. Jack Steele, Shara Khan and Shathys Drelock stand side by side to face whatever dangers this world holds.

A group of small, evil-looking creatures with shoddy but dangerous weapons come charging into the square, singing their Goblin war song. The green-skinned creatures spot the three of you, raise their weapons and charge.

Roll for initiative!

"Goblins...What foul cr-*belch*"

"Perhaps a bit too much mead... Let's get down to business then."

Shathys reaches behind his back and pulls out a viscious looking spiked chain. Though unsteady on his feet at the moment, a calm spreads over him and long practiced hands wield an old friend.

ROUND ONE

Five singing and screeching Goblins come crashing into the market, scattering food and drink everywhere. Four of them look thin and unable to take much punishment. They appear to be armed with nothing but rusty pieces of vaguely sword-shaped metal. The Goblin leading them, however, looks considerably more brawny. He is armed with a large sword and a handful of javelins. He takes a running start and hurls one of the flimsy javelins at Shathys - the biggest and most obvious target. With a sound like a bunch of overly ripe fruit being skewered, it skewers a bunch of overly ripe fruit, missing Shathys entirely.

Spoiler:
Goblin Warrior moves from A2 to D5 and uses Mobile Ranged Attack against Shathys. 16 vs. AC. Miss!

Jack:
Spoiler:
You spot a small, hooded Goblin trying to hide behind some barrels, licking the blood from its dogslicer as it looks excitedly at the three of you, seeking out a new target.

Shathys strides forward, the spiked chain hanging low, his eyes set firmly on the bigger looking goblin. "You're mine, my pretty." 

Shathys drops the chain and swings it low, slashing across the Goblin's chest and swinging around, Shathys brings it around again. This time aiming for the smaller goblin, severing it in half. 

Spoiler:
Move action to move to F6. Minor action to designate Goblin Warrior as your Quarry. Standard action to use Twin Strike.
First attack against Goblin Warrior: 19+9 = 28 vs AC.
Hit for 11 damage.
Second attack against Goblin Cutter (M3):
Natural 20! Goblin Cutter dies.

Shara gives Osmus a little push with her foot, telling him to get closer to the nasty goblins. Under much protest he runs forward.

Spoiler:
Dragonling familiar moves from Sharas origin spot to E 5

"Now Osmus, you know the routine" Shara shouts at him while lifting her staff.

Spoiler:
Using Dragon breath to gain the possibilty of using a close arcane burst which originates from the familiars square.

Uses Bedeviling burst (Close burst 3) on the 3 goblins in the burst.

Roll against M2. 14 + 7 = 21 vs. Will. That's a hit.

Roll against Goblin W a natural 1.

Roll against Goblin B. 9 + 7 vs. Will. A hit for 6 + 8 psychic damage. The target gets slided to C 3.


In some curious way when Shara lifts her staff to cast a spell, it appears in front of Osmus. Sharas eyes changes colour to a light green, as is the fire coming from the little dragonling. The fire burns the first goblin to ashes. The second goblin magically escapes the green flames, while the third goblin gets hit with such power that he is slided to the side.

Jack manages to find his Falchion, shakes his head and looks clearly towards the biggest goblin.
He whispers something under his breath that you can't quite hear, a sharp light gathers around him and with unnatural speed he runs towards the goblin warrior, with the added momentum the blade smoothly cleaves the head from the body in a single swing.

Spoiler:
Minor action to oath goblin warrior.
move to minor to draw falchion
standard to Angelic Alacrity. Shift to E5. 18(and 7)+9 vs 17 ac. Hit. 19 damage total. Goblin warrior is DEAAAAAAAAAAD

With a chorus of screeches and curses, the remaining goblins surge forward, surrounding the pointy-eared man who just killed their boss. In a flurry of surprisingly stabby blades, the goblins manage to score several deep cuts on Jack.

Spoiler:
M1 moves to D4. Uses Goblin Tactics to shift 2 squares to F5. Uses Short Sword against Jack. 21 vs AC. Hit! 4 damage.
Goblin Blackblade moves to D5 to flank Jack. Uses Short Sword against Jack. 23 vs AC. Hit! 10 damage.
M4 moves to D4. Uses Short Sword again Jack. 17 vs AC. Miss!

Shathys leveled the spiked chain at his chest, charging the Bigger goblin surrounding Jack, as he lets out a roar he begins to shimmer and disappears. 

The bigger goblin stiffens and gets out a strangled cry as the viscous spiked chain appears through it's throat in a spray of blood. As it falls to the ground the blade whips around slicing the nearest goblin across the stomach, biting deep and spilling it's entrails on the ground. 

Spoiler:
Move action Shadow Jaunt to teleport to C5. Minor action Off-Hand Strike against Goblin Blackblade. 16 vs AC. Hit! 9 damage. Standard action Twin Strike against Goblin Blackblade. 16 vs AC. Hit! 8 damage. Goblin Blackblade dies. Second Twin Strike against Goblin Cutter 4. 18 vs AC. Hit! Goblin Cutter 4 dies

Shara takes a look at the last goblin. Suddenly the little green guy looks really scared. "Well, who can blame him?" Shara mumbles. "Let me put you out of your misery".

She lifts her hands (staff in one of them) and mumbles something completely not understandable. What is understandable though is the multicoloured bolt of something or other coming from the staff going straight at the little green guy.

Spoiler:
Attack roll for Chaos bolt aimed at Goblin M1 for 5 + 7 = 12 vs. will. That's a hit!

The little guy's eyes widen just before the bolt hits him smack in the head and he is blown to smitherines.

Shathys cleaned his blade slowly.

"What a poor,poor creature..."

Solemnly looking at the dog that died, Shathys shrugged and went to Jack.

VICTORY

Dead goblins are scattered throughout the market, cuts and magical burns marking their bodies. But the dangers isn't over yet. Goblins race everywhere, running amok and singing and slashing indiscriminately. As you find yourself in the eye of the proverbial storm, you have a few moments to rest.

Spoiler:
Hooray! You won your very first battle, and to the victor go the spoils. You each gain 100 XP and you gain the benefit of a short rest (you regain all encounter powers and you can spend healing surges). You have a few moments to gather your thoughts and talk your fellow party members. Go ahead and talk in-game a little bit. When you're done, we'll proceed.

Jack looks at the Shadar-kai for a moment. A strained smile on his lips.
"I've been called many things before, but not old. Where on earth did you get that notion? Anyway, I'm fine. We need to search the bodies and find out why these goblins attacked and how they got through the sentries."
Jack starts searching the bodies for clues as to why they attacked. Also noting their appearance, are they well fed, how is their equipment etc.

spend a surge, regain 6 hp. back up to 22 hp

Jack:
It quickly becomes clear that the goblins possess little of interest. They have nothing on them but their weapons and their armor. The weapons are typical goblin weapons: sharpened and jagged lengths of metal with holes cut out of them to lower their weight. You notice nothing odd about their physique. They seem as well fed as goblins normally are.
